RIU6 Set to Bring Tech Leadership Conference to Clarion University

CLARION, Pa. – Riverview Intermediate Unit #6 will present the “2015 Education Leadership Conference: STEM – Educate to Innovate” on June 17, 2015, at Clarion University of Pennsylvania.

Ideal for college and graduate students, K-12 teachers, administrators, technology staff, after-school providers and those interested in learning about the future of education and technology integration, this one-day conference will include a keynote address from Thomas C. Murray, breakout sessions, and a vendor area for participants to explore STEM based and educational technology products and services.
